Govt no to public-private deals – New Zealand, world, sport, business & entertainment news on Stuff.co.nz

The Government is ruling out the use of public-private partnerships in the state sector, five years after passing legislation to enable them to take place.

Flip-Flop-Flap…just five years ago Labour thought they were all the rage and made a big song and dance about how it was going to help improve our infrastructure. Now? Political Expediency….Hypocrisy.

Oh and how is this for sheer hypocrisy….Labour ridicules National when National wants to borrow money to fund infrastructure but then Naharey says that is exactly what Labour will do.
[quote]Labour had concluded PPPs were not right for New Zealand because of the size of the market and the fact that the Government could borrow money much more cheaply than the private sector.[/quote]

Labour’s secret agenda is coming out. Nationalise bus companies, borrow more for infrastructure. They must come clean about their secret agenda.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
